22-year-old Chyna Johnson decided she wasn’t about to miss Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ tour — even if that meant getting evicted.

The college student spent her rent money on Beyoncé tickets and now says she’s facing eviction.

Naturally, the tweet went viral…but not everyone was quick to believe her story.


Speaking to Buzzfeed, Chyna opened up about her decision and says she has no regrets.

“It is real. I got an eviction letter and everything,” Johnson told BuzzFeed News. The concert was Saturday and she sent us some amazing Snapchats she took at the show.

As for the reactions her tweet got on Twitter, she said it was mostly people just saying, “I would have made the exact same choice, girl,” “You are my spirit animal,” and “Shelter comes and goes but Beyoncé is forever.”

“My priorities are definitely in check to be honest,” she said. “I just am a die-hard Beyoncé fan.” She said she’s graduating college and wanted to go out with a bang. “I had the time of my life. Literally.”

As for the apartment, Johnson thinks she’ll be able to persuade her landlord to give her an extension on the rent. “I’ve never ever been late on rent before so I’m hoping she would have some mercy on me,” she said.

We’re curious — how do you go from facing eviction and receiving an eviction letter to hoping your landlord will have mercy on you? It sounds like someone isn’t telling the whole truth here…but we’re glad she had fun.
